Elliott Smith – A Living Will lyrics

Time to kill, wrote a living will
And gave it to the man in the moon
But I'm gonna get well soon
This happy face is watching me die
Elevate me to another world
All that I can do on my own
Is leave well enough alone
Leave well enough alone
Leave well enough alone
Circumstance dropped by uninvited
And demanded to be fed
But I've already gone to bed
There's nothing you can see from (insight/inside)
My spirit arose and put on my clothes
And helped me (to disconnect/disconnecting)the phone
To leave well enough alone
Leave well enough alone
Leave well enough alone

Time was always a wild (/wired) animal in a cage
First it's all the reaction, now it's all the rage

Waking up at a stations' stop
And reality's invading my brain
The cops gonna search the train they'll take
Away whatever they find
But I don't have the thoughts you want, just a
Memory of love I was shown-
A vision that turns to stone
Leave well enough alone
Leave well enough alone
Leave well enough alone
